I’ve been sitting on these pictures for a while now. When I had printed them out, I felt they would make such a cute layout. But when I brought them to the craft table, my mind went blank. So I put the pictures aside hoping that a wave of inspiration would hit me again. Months passed. I went on my vacation, I finished my daughter’s birthday party, and I was thinking it was time to revisit these pictures.
I wasn’t 100% in love with it, so I let it sit on my craft desk for a day or two…
After a few days, I didn’t really know what else to add. So I figured that I should just commit. So.. I did.
It wasn’t so bad. Once I got the journaling in and the stamps down, it didn’t look so bad. I do have letter stickers, but since I wasn’t 100% in love with the layout, I didn’t want to use them. Because I don’t’ buy those things very often, I plan on using them when I’m totally inspired and loving a layout I’m working on.
The pink and green patterned papers are from a DCWV stack called “The Preppy Princess Stack.” The yellow polka dot patterned paper is from a 6 x 6 pad from My Mind’s Eye called “Darling Dear.”
The one thing I love about this layout is that I used up a good number of buttons. I’m still trying to get through my stash of buttons so I can buy another stash of some other sort of embellishment.
So, here’s the finished layout? What do you think?
